Skewed 'n Reviewed sits down with Niklas ‘Swede’ Johansson, Senior Game Designer at Spacetime Studios about the new game Dark Legends.
Here's an excerpt from the interview:
How are new skills, power ups, and weapons managed and obtained?
New skills are unlocked as your character grows and at higher levels you are able to rank these skills up- improving them and further tailoring your character the way you want to play.
Power ups are found while performing the story elements of Dark Legends. These come in the way of timed buffs, ranging in power from a slight speed boost to doubling your damage output. We basically took the elixirs of our previous Legends titles and instead of selling them, made them rewards for exploring the content.
Loot is acquired by defeating enemies, searching for stashes and successfully completing dungeons. The most important of this loot will be weapons and power gems. Weapons very directly affect your damage output but often have secondary stats that improve both offensive and defensive capabilities. Power gems are shards of power that can be equipped to further customize your character towards defense or offense.
